Coaches Workshop: Coaching through Covid


We are delighted to announce that the IABA’s next webinar is ‘Coaches: Coaching Through Covid’ on Thursday 26th November 2020, 7:00pm – 8:00pm. This 1 hour webinar will be facilitated by Dr Jamie Taylor, Senior Coach Educator with Grey Matters Performance.


Summary: Coach strategies to engage & motivate boxers during this time, to help them to stay connected to their club, training & future competition.

Workshop Overview:

During this period where many of us are spending a majority of our time at home due to the outbreak Covid19 and less time within our clubs training, our boxers may become very disillusioned with thoughts of ‘why bother to train’, ‘what is the point’? or ‘how will I compete and get back to training when this finally lift’?

Jamie will discuss some key strategies which will help coaches to engage with their boxers to motivate them during this time, thus helping them to stay connected to the club, their training and ultimately their goal of competing.

Jamie’s presentation will last approximately 40 minutes, followed by a Q&A session where participants will be given the opportunity to interact directly with Jamie.

Please note this workshop is for IABA Affiliated Club coaches/members only!
